How To Create an Embossed Look on Worbla

embossing worbla

Worbla is a versatile material that I find endlessly fascinating. I’ve highlighted tutorials on working with Worbla several times and will continue to do so to encourage all of us to experiment with it. Erza Cosplay uses Worbla for armor frequently, and she manipulates it so that it has an embossed look. It really adds to the beauty and realism of the finished armor, and it’s easier to do than you might think.

Erza demonstrates how to create the embossed or half relief look in the above photo in her newest tutorial video. Basically, you cut a pattern from what appears to be craft foam and place it under the Worbla. Heating the Worbla makes it flexible, and you can then form it over the pattern and use a tool to accentuate all the details of the pattern.

Watch how it’s done:
